Prayer for Strength (Rabindranath Tagore)
This is my prayer to you, my Lord
Strike, strike at the root of penury in my heart.
Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows.
Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.
Give me the strength never to disown the poor
Or bend my knees before insolent might.
Give me the strength, to raise my mind high above daily trifles
And give me the strength to surrender my strength to Your Will with love
